England: Bat Boxes.


We have been busy recently making some new bat boxes or our local wildlife park – Jeskyns.


Search their website for all the latest –  http://www.forestry.gov.uk/jeskyns  


We are starting with 3 boxes and going to see how things progress – but are ready to make more.  Here are a few pictures of the first box.





They have been produced in accordance with instructions on the leaflet of Kent Bat Group.


Well the new homes are there – all we need now is bat residents !

Now we wait to see if we have any success.  In the meantime, our ‘Bee Hotel’ is around 5 years old now.  A new roof has just been fitted as it is still very, very busy; and so the next project is to drill out some new logs and make fresh chambers for the bees to lay their eggs in.

Remember the old pics of the past – Mark and Denise after they had finished with the original.

News From Four Paws UK: All Animals In Gaza Hell Hole Zoo Now Rescued.


Past SAV links:

Dear Mark

FOUR PAWS rescues all animals from Khan Younis Zoo.
If you’re having problems viewing this email,  open it in your browser.

SUCCESS. Thanks to your outstanding support, the animals of Khan Younis Zoo have been rescued at last.

The FOUR PAWS rescue team arrived in Gaza on Monday to permanently close the zoo, which has been referred to as the ‘worst zoo in the world’.

Sadly, we were heartbroken to learn that one of the animals, the newborn fawn, passed away before our team arrived – once again highlighting the critical nature of our work in Gaza.

Nonetheless, we are happy to report that the 15 remaining animals, including Laziz the tiger, have now been safely transported across the Gaza border into Israel, onwards to a better life.

But the mission will not be complete until every animal has reached their final destination.

Most of the animals will find a new home at the New Hope Center in Jordan. While Laziz will make the longer journey to LIONSROCK, our big cat sanctuary in South Africa.

Watch this space. We’ll be sending a few more emails in the coming days, documenting the rest of the mission.

Warmest regards,

Saige Jennings

P.S. This mission was only possible because of the kind donations, big and small, of our generous supporters. But our work is never over. Please give today to support this mission and our work with animals around the world.

England: Here We Go Again – Government Idiots Killing Badgers For Farmers Votes.


badgers north west hunt sabs

Here we go again !

The government doing nothing for animal welfare but trying to convince farmers – their voters – that they are acting regarding TB allegedly in Badgers.


As you can see from many of our posts on the last recent badger cull, which are listed here; the joke of a UK government (Defra) are not even doing post kill checks to actually see that the animals do / do not have TB !! – yes, they just kill them but do not follow up with checks o see if any animals are carrying the disease.

It seems from info obtained on 24/8 that it will cost approximately £7,000 for each animal to be culled.  And then the government does not even check for TB – is this a sad joke or what ????


Here is our post from last time relating specifically to this



badger girls 2

Here are the main links from our site when we had the last badger cull a few months back:

Some past SAV posts associated with the anti badger cull campaign:

















The only positive news is that the twin pratts – Cameron and Patterson, have both been removed from their positions.  The bad news is that the government learns nothing from the last cull (see links above) and instead goes out for more kills just to please the farmers and to make it look as if they are addressing the problem of TB; which they are not.

As the first link says from the BBC, and as we have argued for years, it is the transportation of live cattle all over the country which is really causing the problem.  The government will not address this.  Farmers for example sell Bovines in the North to farmers in the South; these animals are shipped by road; passing through several counties; and then everyone jumps up and down where there is a new TB outbreak in the South.  To the normal person it is not rocket science – to government dimwits, they just don’t see it; but then votes from farmers are their most important thing.

Government – how about looking into live animal transport issues ? – but then you support live exports so we should not expect anything positive from you here.

And as for ol’ Badger, he takes the blame for transmitting the disease, he is killed, no research is done by DEFRA and they go on wasting public money.  Utter incompetent ‘tools’ – each and every one of them who think they are so higher up the pyramid.  No – they are fools !!

Patterson and Cameron have both now gone – does this not say something ?

·         Tell European Commissioners to act and stop exports from the EU to non-EU countries

eu crisis 2

When EU animals are exported to countries outside the EU anything can happen to them. They can end up exported to volatile war-zones and face brutal slaughter. The EU must take responsibility for these animals.


Petition 2

·         Sign the petition against live exports to countries outside the EU

As long as live exports are allowed to continue, Europe’s most vulnerable farm animals will suffer unimaginably at the hands of the live exports industry. Sign our petition today and help stop this trade.
